User Flow

User Flow— UX Knowledge Base Sketch #9

What is the essence of a Userflow?

A Userflow is a sequence of steps the user needs to take in order to accomplish a task inside an application or a website.

Userflows are made of steps. To design these steps in a user friendly way, we need to have a user-centered mindset, and imagine that the user and the interface is having a conversation. To every user-input, the system responds with something. Sketching is a great way of designing Userflows, and I also recommend using a shorthand technique developed by Ryan Singer, which only utilizes texts and connector lines.
